Specialist Psychotherapy Service

This service is part of Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust (SHSC). It provides a service for adults, offering specialist assessment and treatment in a range of psychotherapeutic methods, including cognitive behavioural psychotherapy and psychoanalytic psychotherapy (individual and group).

The service is for those who experience complex mental health problems that have not responded to previous treatment and who require a specialist team intervention.

The Specialist Psychotherapy Service has four specialist diagnostic teams focused on:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)/Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)
  • Personality Disorder

Waiting time to assessment will be approximately 6 - 12 weeks. If assessed as suitable for treatment, service users will then be placed on the relevant waiting list.

Referrals are accepted from professionals working in primary and secondary healthcare, eg. GP, Community Mental Health Team or psychiatrist.

Operating hours are Mon and Wed 8am-5pm; Tue and Thu 8am-7pm; Fri 8am-4.30pm
